I'm a pudding-in-a-paper-bag type person who enjoys the Northwest Territories, my rabbit and long walks on the rocky shores of Cape Breton Island. My passion in life is to give justice to people who have been treated unfairly.

They Deserve Better

“Lord, please help me see these people the way You do.” What a dangerous prayer. I often like to hide behind walls and let my own prejudices get in the way when it comes to the poor. However, when it comes down to it- they are my brothers and sisters. …

Not What But Who

It’s not what you are. It’s who you are. (Feel free to disagree with me on this article, it’s my truth I’ve settled on- maybe not yours) There’s this passage in the Little Prince (I know I reference it a lot but it’s my favourite book so shh), where the …

The Growing Kind
